I need someone with expertise in Dutch and English to help with my translations of Dutch poetry that appeared in an English newspaper.
As part of a book that I am completing, I need translations of short phrases and lines of poetry that appeared in Dutch in nineteenth-century Indonesia. I have identified and even provided my estimates of the translations, but I need an expert fluent in both Dutch and English to check them. Some of the phrases are meant to be serious, and others are supposed to be funny, so any knowledge of the Dutch empire in Indonesia, where this newspaper was published, would be extremely helpful, but not necessary.
Please contact me for the relevant materials. The amount of material to be checked is minimal, totaling approximately one page. More important is accuracy and precision about the possible interpretations of Dutch and English.
